According to The Wolfpack Podcast, Cinemark Theaters is offering movie goers the chance to book private screenings of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in December, for a modest fee.
If you can call $2,500 modest, that is.
Here’s a poster promoting the event, sent in to The Wolfpack Podcast by Owen Treolo.

I almost wish I had over two thousand dollars to spare that I could spend on something like this! I see the appeal of it; you’d bypass the huge crowds, avoid having to almost step on people’s toes to squeeze through to your seat, and be able to scream as loud as you want at all the epic parts. Plus, it’d be a surefire way to get your whole family and all of your friends into the same theater for the same showing (no sold-out tickets!).
On the other hand, though, there are probably a lot of benefits to going to a regular screening like everyone else. You can make friends in line; and if you get into an early showing, odds are that the audience will filled with Star Wars fans, who won’t care if you scream because they’ll be screaming right along with you. I suppose I’ll find out, because I hope to go to the earliest (public) screening possible!
Also: $2,500, just for one private screening? Unless I was surrounded by my best Star Wars fan friends, I don’t think I’d take it.
What about you? How much would you be willing to pay for your own big screen to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens?
